1 John 4:7-11, Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
At His Tabernacle the Lord gives us a theme that builds the vision, and this year it is LOVING PEOPLE.
How can you love people if you do not LOVE YOURSELF?
Matt. 22:39, And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself.
So to love other people, you must love yourself too. There are so many people who are struggling with low self-esteem. They self-loath in such a deep manner no matter how much they smile and paste on a happy face, they still do not like themselves inside. This viewpoint of themselves in the long run determines how they love other people.
So why are so many people HURTING and struggling with SELF-ESTEEM?
They have been HURT THEMSELVES, or they allow OFFENSES into their lives.
Painful wounds from people who are close to you. Jesus had Judas in His family who betrayed Him. Maybe it was your parent who abused you in His family that betrayed Him. Maybe it was your parent that abused you, a friend betrayed you, a spouse cheated on you, you felt God disappointed you, you were hurt in church……….. the list never ends on how wounds come into our lives.
YOUR HEART WAS BROKEN, WOUNDED, AND YOU ACHE INSIDE, YOU ARE NOW TURNING THAT INTO AN OFFENSE.
WOUNDS & OFFENSES ARE THE DEVIL’S MAIN TOOL TO DESTROY YOUR LIFE!
If Satan can get you to take on wounds that become offenses then you will never complete the vision and purpose of your life!
